Is it possible to reduce the size of a helmet?
I have a fiberglass helmet that i would like a smaller version of.
I know it would have to be remolded to do it. But i wasn't sure if it was at all possible.
I was thinking maybe a latex mold backed with a fiberglass jacket. I'm hoping the latex would shrink somewhat to a more desired size. Or does smoothon make a shrinking mold material? I don't need to shrink it a whole lot but enough to fit my hieght/size. I really like the helmet but its to big for a 5'8 person.
any ideas??

I don't know if Smooth-On has anything like that. But give them a call and tell them what you want to do. They've always been good at answering questions about their products and offering ideas and assistance.

Sure. Wash it in really hot water then dry it in a really hot dryer.
Hey, I did it with this sweater I have, and now it fits my GI Joe.
